Hallock drafted by Phillies in 49th round of MLB Draft

Perkins’ Kyle Hallock was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies on the final day of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft on Wednesday.

Hallock was selected in the 49th round with the 27th pick (1,491 overall) by the Phillies.

The southpaw finished this past season at Kent State with an 8-5 record and a save with a 5.64 ERA in 83 innings pitched.

The highlight of the season for Hallock came on May 29 when he received the win in both games of a double header on championship Saturday of the Mid-American Conference tournament. In Kent State’s 9-8, 10-inning win over Eastern Michigan, Hallock threw a scoreless top of the 10th before KSU prevailed in the bottom of the inning. Just 45 minutes later, he started the championship game against Central Michigan, allowing only two earned runs and on five hits in seven innings pitched.

For his Kent State career, Hallock has a 12-9 mark with four saves in 190 2/3 innings of work.
